Toronto Immigration Lawyers Advising Employees on Moving From Permanent Residency to Citizenship

At Sultan Lawyers, located in downtown Toronto, our knowledgeable team of workplace immigration lawyers regularly advise temporary foreign workers on a wide range of immigration-related processes, including obtaining permanent residency and citizenship in Canada. We provide legal guidance to foreign workers who wish to obtain permanent status in Canada to ensure they understand the permanent residency process as well as the citizenship process. We also provide timely solutions and ensure that foreign workers have the information they need in order to make their process to permanent residency and/or citizenship seamless.

When do permanent residents of Canada become eligible for Canadian citizenship?

Permanent residents of Canada are generally eligible for Canadian citizenship if they have been physically in Canada for at least 1,095 days (or three (3) years) during the five (5) years preceding the date their citizenship application is submitted. Applicants who are between the ages of 18 to 54 on the day their application is signed, must show that they can speak and listen at a specific level in one of Canada’s main languages (English or French), including that the applicant meets the Canadian Language Benchmarks (“CLB”) Level 4 or higher.

Applicants between the ages of 18 to 54 will also need to take a citizenship test. Permanent residents will need to answer questions about the rights and responsibilities of Canada and Canadians, including in relation to:

  • History;
  • Geography;
  • Economy;
  • Government;
  • Laws; and
  • Symbols
